LEGENDS OF BOLLYWOOD: THE UNSUNG HEROES
On Saturday, October 24th and Sunday, October 25th, Nazar returned to the Central Square YMCA to break it down - that is, to break Bollywood down, in Bollywood Deconstructed. In its third annual dance showcase, Nazar explored the building blocks of Bollywood - from classical and Indian folk to hip hop, jazz, and contemporary. Over the past century, Bollywood dance has absorbed vocabulary from all over the world, and Nazar has worked to deconstruct and reconstruct it into a show for everyone. Nazar's production was complemented by guest acts from OnStage Dance Company and ConArt.
In its second annual dance showcase, Nazar presented the incomparable beauty and wonder of women: her paradoxes, her passion, her endless abandon, her incredible strength, her boundless capacity to dazzle and all that makes her a force to be reckoned with. Seven independently choreographed explored a woman's spirituality, innocence, euphoria in love, sensuality, dark side, power, and vivacity. Nazar also welcomed guest acts by OnStage Dance Company and ConArt.
On October 26th, 2013, Nazar Bollywood Dance Troupe presented A Century: Bollywood Through Decades. Nazar's first annual dance showcase took the audience on a journey through the decades of India’s vibrant Bollywood history, from the 50s to present day. Nazar welcomed guest acts from Boston College's Latin dance team, Fuego del Corazon, and Intimations Dance Company.
